Disney World Boardwalk Inn
Transportation to and from the All Star Movies is pretty basic. You ride a bus, excuse me, a Luxury Motor Coach. Lines form in front of the Premier Hall. Sometimes long lines form. Yes, during certain periods of the day buses are shared with the other All Star Resorts.

Disney's Luxury Motor Coach
Disney runs Luxury Motor Coaches (buses) to the four theme parks, the two water parks, and Downtown Disney from the hotel. Getting to other Disney World resorts can be difficult and the lines to wait for transportation can be daunting at rush times.
For example, there is no easy way to get to Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge. To get there you could take a bus to one of the theme parks where you would then change and grab a bus, after you stand in line again, to the Wilderness Lodge.
That's why Dad recommends a car at Disney World for your DIsney World vacation.
Buses can become very crowded during the park opening and closing times. You might have to wait for a couple of buses and during the slower times you'll share buses with the other All Star Resorts and make more stops.
Disney's Magical Express
Disney will now take you from the airport to the Resort and back. And it doesn't cost you anything. Yes, that's right it's absolutely free. Just make reservations for DIsney's Magical Express and let Disney do the driving.
Driving to the All Stars
Dad's a big fan of driving at Walt Disney World. Disney Transportation does a marvelous job of moving millions of people from place to place, but sometimes there are millions of people to move around which causes lots of waiting and stress.
To get to the hotel, if you get off I-4 on -
- W. Osecola Parkway - follow the road west to Buena Vista Drive and turn left. You can't miss it.
- World Drive - Exit at Osceola Parkway toward Animal Kingdom. Take a left on Osceola Parkway.

Dad's Bottom Line
While Dad always recommends a car at Disney World, the bus service is amazing. Oh, and don't forget to ride the monorail (Dad's favorite Walt Disney World ride).
